President's plan could aid unauthorized immigrants in California

When teenagers get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol, their decision could affect them for the rest of their life. Whether they are involved in an accident that causes serious injuries or loss of life or are pulled over and charged with underage drunk driving, it is important for teenagers and their parents to understand the consequences of underage DUI. In Virginia Beach and throughout the state of Virginia, people who are struggling with underage drunk driving charges should closely analyze the ins and outs of their situation and pinpoint the best path forward.

How do I get a record clearance for my visa application?

As part of the application process to obtain a U.S. visa, an immigrant may be instructed to get what is called a record clearance. This is basically a background check to show a person's record with law enforcement. If an immigrant has received a traffic ticket or was arrested, this information appears on that record, along with the reasons for the arrest and the resolution of the charges. In California, immigrants can receive their record clearance from the State of California Department of Justice.

What steps can be taken to help unsheltered migrants?

The migrant flood from South American countries has taken a large toll on many parts of the U.S. recently. Facilities of any sort simply aren't equipped to deal with the high number of unaccompanied youths and families that have crossed the border, leading to a shortage in housing, food, clothing and other amenities. This may lead some people to ask what they can do to help these migrants while they wait for their day in immigration court. Here is some general advice that may be used to help give aid to those in need.

Current migrant housing system is under strain

Since many residents of Riverside, California, are involved in the immigration community in some way, it may also be known to many that there has been a recent influx in the number of unaccompanied minors crossing the border. According to CBS, there have been approximately 57,000 unaccompanied immigrant children to arrive in the U.S. since October 2013.

What can an immigrant be detained for?

The detainment of undocumented immigrants has been a topic of debate in Riverside, California, for a while. Many activist groups in the area directly clash with immigration law officials, believing that undocumented immigrants should be sent back to their own country. Others argue that detaining immigrants breaks up families and prevents people from caring for their spouses and children. The debate has only grown more heated in recent years as the number of immigrants has continued to rise.

Hope for immigration reform diminishes

Residents of Riverside County may be aware of the battle for immigration reform that has been waging for quite a while now. As immigration law stagnates and becomes more of an issue, more people both in and out of immigrant communities begin to notice, leading to what many believe is a class of policies and ideologies.

Immigrants may be safe from extended jail time

Riverside may soon be in for some jail changes in regard to immigration detention. While deportation sometimes follows detainment, the detention itself can be a grueling experience. In order to lower the number of immigrants being detained, there have been many moves recently to keep jails and federal immigration agents from working together.

Boosting the economy by getting immigrants education and citizenship

The children of immigrants in Riverside County may have been afraid to attend college until now. Due to the stalled immigration law reform, students who are not registered as citizens are still potentially at risk of being found by authorities, which is a big deterrent to some. However, that deterrent may be abolished soon.

House Republicans need convincing that immigration reform is not liberal ploy

Immigrants and activists in Riverside may have experienced a recent upswing in people who wish to obtain their citizenship. Whether it's through naturalization or work visas, more immigrants are getting frustrated with the slow-moving approval system which has all but come to a stop lately.

House could be looking for a way to pull out of immigration negotiation

The problems with deportation have been known to Riverside immigration activists for quite a while. When it comes to U.S. immigration law and how it relates to detainees, many have been unsatisfied and have pushed for both citizenship reform and deportation reform, but their solidarity has been threatened recently.
